Governor Matt Mead tried unsuccessfully to convince the Wyoming Legislature to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. The Republican and Democratic candidates for governor disagree on the issue. One says the expansion would cover health care for 20,000 residents, and is essential for local hospitals that otherwise have to absorb that cost. The other says expansion does not solve the problem of high health care costs, and the state would have to pay for it when federal funds dried up. What do you think?
Should Medicaid be expanded in Wyoming?

Allowing health insurance companies to cross state lines has been suggested as a way to lower health insurance costs. Six states, including Wyoming, Georgia, Kentucky, Maine, Rhode Island, and Washington, encourage out of state health insurance companies to offer coverage to their residents. No insurance company has done that in any of the states because of the difficulty involved in setting up networks of providers.
Should Wyoming abandon the idea of bringing in out of state insurance companies, or should it offer incentives such as tax breaks to get them to come in?
